Hosting is the service of providing storage space and resources on a server for a website. A website’s information, content, and everything else pertaining to it are stored, maintained, and kept safe in the server linked to the Internet. The company that provides the hosting services is known as a Web host. It is the one in charge of ensuring that your website stays online, as long as you continue paying the fees, of course.

Hosting works the same way as landlords renting out an apartment. Paying the landlord regularly assures the resident continuous use of the apartment unit.
